The Power of Zeal and EnthusiasmJasween Dogra
What is the first thought you have when you open your eyes in the morning? Is it a positive thought or a negative one? The first thought you have in the morning will usually determine how your day goes by.
I am working on keeping the thought that ‘I am loved’ to make my day go well and develop the power of zeal and enthusiasm. You could also try a point of self respect such as “I am worthy ”. The last thought you have before you go to sleep is also important and will determine your mood the next morning.
What I have learned at the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University is that the power of zeal and enthusiasm is the most important power of the soul. With zeal and enthusiasm, anything is possible. You can make the impossible possible. With zeal and enthusiasm comes positivity, determination and spiritual intoxication. With intoxication comes spiritual strength.
So what are the thoughts of a number one soul?
They will have the intoxication that “even in their thoughts, every thought is guaranteed to be successful. In their actions also, they will have the intoxication that success is merged in their every action, like a shadow. Success is guaranteed in their words.” These are the three stages.
Each day before you go to sleep, keep a chart of what you did well and what you need to improve on. Make effort on a daily basis to perfect yourself for the good of humanity. When you make effort to do something good and help yourself, souls will automatically come forward to help you. This is my experience.
We spend all our time trying to overcome obstacles by breaking them. The trick is to take a high jump. All we need to do is “move around them, go beyond them or take ourselves above them”.
Never see something as a problem. The obstacle has come FOR you not against you. It has come to make you strong and see it as a stepping stone for the next stage. Obstacles are there for you to reach a higher stage in your destiny. Don’t have resistance but simply accept.
Nothing lasts forever, every scene is destined to change. This is a Drama and we are actors on the world stage.
You can also try seeing the Drama as entertainment, knowing that one day finally you will reach your destiny. Remember that you are the creator of your destiny! Your thoughts create your destiny.
Believe in you!
